Harmonicas are smaller, cheaper, easier to play, and just as expressive. If I can get the same bang for less bucks without having to lug around a honkin' guitar, then it seems like a stupid notion not to choose the Mississippi Saxophone (harmonica.)
Even my Backpacker guitar was big enough to get me searched by the fuzz when some dope thought it was a sniper rifle. So if I hadn't brought my guitar to play that day I'd have never been searched by the 5-0, which means I was stupid for playing guitar.
It would have been much smarter to pocket a blues harp.

I think a certain challenge issuer now owes me a ten-spot Smile

And its a better visual when you smash a guitar on a monitor on stage. What would you do with a harmonica? Step on it? Smile

Swallow it, like in that old Vaudville routine?

Look, I wish the chicks swarmed after banjo players.

Hm.

Actually, maybe they do. Maybe it's just me?

I love a good harmonica player but you can't sing when you play the harmonica. And chicks love it when you sing . Smile

Playing guitar is relaxing. Perhaps because I've been doing it since I was little. My first love is the keyboard though.

I switched to harmonica after many years of guitar. It has some very nice advantages as mentioned. But doing diatonic blues, you gotta carry about 6 around to be able to sit in... might go back to my Xaphoon...

I have two long-neck banjos. Three extra frets so I can go down low.

Can a banjo feed you? Sure. At certain festivals I stroll around in the morning, picking and saying, "Good morning," to other campers. They feed me... Probably to stop me from playing.

For the record, I play guitar too, with one of them fancy neck bracket harp holders. So lest anyone think the thread is being highjacked by banjo players.

I am unable to learn the harmonica because I hae no talent. To show you I try I have my 532/20 MS BLUES HARP IN C right here and I bleat on it every night

Screw all of you harp players for making me feel bad. In Canada you would be arrested . A special evil eye to Andrew Whimhurst who I otherwise really like but he plays one hell of a harp and guitar (find Chase The Ace by The Groove KingsK.

I can't juggle
I can't play an instrument
I can't see my feet

Stop the hate!

If chicks were smart they'd go after the harmonica players, for reasons I shan't reveal Smile
You can make a... uh... firecracker... using a harmonica case.
You wanna hear a great harp blower who can also sing?

Now, Junior's partnership with Buddy Guy actually illustrates why both instruments are great!

Now if you play guitar and harmonica together, you can be a Bob Dylan-style folk singer.
By the by, If I'm not mistaken, tomorrow is the centennial of the birth of Woody Guthrie.

Everybody loves some fancy down home spoon playing! (Especially at the table for impromptu dinner time entertainment in finer restaurants!)

Yes! You're right. Wow, it's been awhile since I picked up a pair of spoons!
